    Taking Requests

    Teal you do such a great job helping people with individual needs and guiding them through relationships. I feel ungrateful asking for more but you used to occasionally drop hints about what you see happening in the world. A while ago you said something about world war 3 and how we don't even realize we are in it. I know you have to steer clear of politics but what do you see that we are blind to? I think it would help if we could all see each others fears. Many of the folks who I disagree with on politics have great fear of the "other" race, color, religion, culture and nationality but they d
  2. I remember being a long haired student walking with friends and a young woman with kids crossed the road to walk on the other side of the street to avoid passing us on the sidewalk. One of my first experiences of being so different that others would fear me. I realized this was what people of color felt when others rejected them just because of their color.

    Thank you Teal for healing Christmas and freeing Christmas to be an expression of our souls!

    Christmas Story

    Christmas can be whatever I want it to be! We have an over extended family and so Christmas has become a family event in a much more open ended way than most would imagine with a table filled with those we know have no where else to go and no one else to be family with. The feeling around the table is much more like the true spirit of Christmas than the socially stressful and demanding Christmas that is so common. Make your own family, your own traditions and then you can own Christmas in a whole new way, in a whole new world. Thank you Teal for being the Mother of this Teal Swan Tribe and bri
  5. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Cool Cuanza and a  warm Winter Solstice to you all! Well almost. It's the bottom of the year and I always seem to find myself in a bit of depression with this season of loss of sunlight and loss of Son-light where crass consumerism eclipses the Christian celebration of the birth of the Christ child, God incarnate into the world. This Solstice seems uniquely dark, ominous and auspicious. After a year of Covid pandemic panic, politics and economic depression the potential for WWIII, Armageddon seems appropriate to follow the grand conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. And yet in spite of all this doom and gloom, hope springs eternal that light follows darkness, joy comes with the morning. How will we transform ourselves and our world with the coming of a new year?  Be Blessed, be a blessing!

  6. Peace; to be able to turn off all the internal dialogue and just feel the oneness and peace. Turn all the prisons into healing centers!

    Haunted Painting

    Thank you Teal for sharing her, she seems so inquisitive wanting to see what's going on around her but the thing that drew my attention was her hands and her fingers. How graceful and sensitive, was she an artist? a seamstress? But on closer inspection her fingers seem out of perspective as though they are moving in some unnatural way. They seem too long to be wholly human and yet so graceful and delicate. And yet, there's pain there too. Take good care of her!
  8. I give up. The stress has gotten to me and I'm ready to quit. Between the Covid threat, the guards, the co-workers, the administration, none of them seem to have my back. I suspect they see me as a threat to the status quo and I learned a long time ago to listen to my gut! It breaks my heart.
  9. What a timely introduction. I've gone back to work in a prison psych unit only to find the addiction treatment to be largely absent due to budget cuts over previous years. I'm lobbying for more addiction treatment where I work and because of my background as a provider administration is responding positively.
  10. Diabetes and addiction have often been compared and I agree there seems to be a link here! I have type 2 diabetes and have to take oral medication daily. That's perfectly acceptable in our society where self-medicating or abusing self with drugs or alcohol is not. But there is a physical link as well. the damage done by years of alcohol abuse can damage the liver and pancreas' ability to function properly and this produces a situation where we must address the lack of healthy function through diet, exercise and medication. Our attitude toward this can be negative, "oh poor me look at all the s

    Why You Get Triggered

    What is really scary is when you see people you work with intentionally triggering their patients not to address the source of those feelings but to exercise their own power and feel superior as therapists.

    Total BS

    BS indeed! We need the concept of forgiveness to give us hope and direction for without forgiveness there is no growth there is no possibility of letting go the hate that can consume our whole existence. I know you know this Teal and i have heard you speak of how your letting go of your abuse and forgiving the abuse freed you to become the spiritual leader you've become today. Yes, forgiveness and "I forgive you." become trite and over simplified to the point of corruption. True forgiveness is a long and messy process which has little to do with the abuser and everything to do with our own per

    Somatic Hallucinations

    Normal learning takes place in the brain as patterns of neurons firing reinforce th neurons ability to produce the neurotransmitter hormones that are required for the neuron to fire. So in the completion process the brain is flooded with neuro transmitters which then allow new pathways to form and begin the process of replacing the old pathways that need to be "unlearned." So during the flood other pathways that have been ignored or repressed also fire and allow us to feel things we had shut off in our brain in order to deal with the overwhelming nature of these sensations. It's kind of like w
  14. Hi Teal, glad to hear you got some time off and wilderness time to feed you soul. I agree we're all in this together and we can help each other over come the gas lighting but my feelings of doom are fed by the reality of the major extinction event we find ourselves in and corona just seems to be a symptom of this larger doom which literally threatens to remove our species as it currently exists on this planet. Can you speak to this?
  15. Thanks Teal, that makes a lot of sense. Wilhelm Reich wrote The mass psychology of Fascism in the '30s detailing how the family structure of an authoritarian father created a society who idealized the strong man/dictator form of government that led to Hitler and the Holocaust. He paralleled the authoritarianism of the family with the authoritarianism in government and showed a relationship between family structure and societal structure. We are struggling to throw off that need for authoritarian rule and become more truly democratic and integrated. I also thing the principal is related to the
